A bit about us

Artefacto was founded in London by Sara Wingate Gray and Kate Lomax in 2013 to work with cultural and heritage organisations to provide new, creative ways for audiences to engage with collections.

We're a creative technology company specialising in learning and making for the libraries, museums, archives and galleries sectors.

Kate Lomax

Kate is a creative technologist and librarian with over 10 years experience in web development and library and archive technology. She has previously been an eLearning project manager in the NHS, an ICT librarian, an academic librarian and a web developer and specialises in publishing, collections and education technologies.

Kate likes building things, teaching things, learning things and dismantling things (not necessarily in that order) and is particularly interested in user experience, online learning and digital publishing. 

From 2009 until 2013, Kate was the Project Manager for the NHS eLearning repository and some of her previous projects have included installing and managing The Feminist Library‘s first open source library management system, and participating in training Radical Librarians.

She currently works with Fossbox and Artefacto to promote open and emerging technologies in the community, arts and library and information sectors and is co-founder of Biblio, a new online bibliotherapy platform.
